Canada’s digital future

Main stage

Alex Benay, Chief Information Officer of the Government of Canada is bringing a different lens to the technology landscape of government—his goal is to create a government that is more exponential, rather than linear, in order to meet Canadians’ needs for digital services. Alex’s keynote address will discuss the ways in which  the public sector must strive toengage with citizens in a way that is open and digital by default first. Alex will also touch on how the Government of Canada, among others, must embrace the technologies needed to operate in a digital world and promote innovation in the public sector – in order to bring government services into the information age.
